I am obsessed with getting our fresh produce from our local co-op. This Baked Salmon with Roasted Purple Potatoes and Golden Beets is all sourced directly from local farms aside from the salmon. Let me show you how this came together in my kitchen.
Baked with Roasted Purple Potatoes and Golden Beets
This is a family favorite in our house. In fact, the other kids in the neighborhood will come over and specifically request this meal! They love the various colors that end up on their plate and it's an inspiring thing to watch children actively learning how to eat healthier!
What is the first step to cook purple potatoes with green beans?
Since potatoes will take the longest time to cook, they should be prepared first.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Slice the potatoes into bite-sized pieces.
- Prepare the green beans by slicing the ends off of them, and in half if need be for length.
- Toss them both in a bowl with butter spray and a mixture of salt and pepper
- Lay them in a single layer on a cookie sheet. (I prefer to use Gotham Steel because it is nonstick and easy to clean)
- Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender.
Can You Eat The Greens From Beets?
Golden beets are absolutely delicious and the brightness of their color shines in this dish. Detach the greens from the base and slice them up. I recommend dicing the beets up into tiny cubes to allow them to cook faster.
Use a nonstick skillet on the stove and heat it on medium-high until you can sprinkle a little water in and it sizzles. Toss in the diced beets, saving the greens to the side at first. While the beets are cooking, prepare your other baking sheet for the salmon.
On a sheet of parchment paper, layer slices of lemon all across the bottom. Place the salmon filets on top of the lemon slices after seasoning both sides with salt and pepper. Place in the oven with the potatoes and green beans for about 10-12 minutes.
I make a mixture of crushed sunflower seeds, italian spices and 1 tsp of olive oil to place on top of the salmon before putting it into the oven. It's optional, but does have a great texture element for ONLY 1 POINT per serving.
Finish up the beets by adding in the greens and a splash of apple cider vinegar and a sprinkle of garlic powder. Once the beets are tender and the greens are wilted down, you can remove them from the heat to serve. By now, everything in the oven should be just about finished.
I love that the color on this plate so accurately describes what a perfect meal it is for someone following the myWW Purple Plan!
